    Captain America Annual #1 tells a satisfying chase story along the way to the next Infinity Stone event. It paints a compelling, well-rounded portrait of Overtime, who emerges as the leading "Infinity Person" thanks to his new desire to seek out the other stone-holders. The gritty, detailed art could use a touch more motion, but overall this is a lean, speedy spy caper as well as an interesting serving of event groundwork. Read Full Review

    A solid issue that hooks the reader into caring about the remaining Infinity stones. Read Full Review

    Captain America is the kind of character who seems to be used to make political points and view points in any number of creators. Duggan has returned to a straight up superhero story, which when compared to the possibly heavy handedness of his regular book at times, is actually quite refreshing. Read Full Review

    The "Infinite Destinies" event marches on in this week's Captain America Annual, and it definitely creates a more satisfying reading experience than the installments that came before it. Read Full Review

    Widow and Cap have fun banter, but the book feels less like a Cap book overall and more like an Avengers story. And quite frankly, an Avengers story that should have been told earlier considering the event in question happened in 2018. To go this route with the Annual is a bit odd, but Steve has some standout moments in the title. Read Full Review

    I wish someone would snap their fingers and get rid of the infinity stones and the storylines. I'm writing this article squatted on the desk like Widow and I'll pop a wheelie while shouting the word loudly as I post it. 1 star Read Full Review

    This was good. I'm actually enjoying this annual event more than I expected to. I was one of the five people who enjoyed Infinity Countdown/Infinity Wars, but even I was iffy on the new Infinity Watch being composed of hosts for the Infinity Stones. The Wolverine miniseries that followed up Infinity Wars (very odd choice btw), gave a hint of that and while I remember liking it, I don't remember it inspiring confidence in the idea. I do actually really enjoy that these new Infinity Watch characters are plucked from other pre-established stories. I much prefer that than entirely new characters created specifically for this event. It's a good use of continuity, and that's always a plus. The only thing that bothers me, just a little bit, is tha more

    Cap and Black Widow try and fail to catch Overtime, the Time Stone Guy. The story's basically functional. The art is mighty rough. I like Overtime (I think he's positioned well for the event moving forward), I'm neutral on this Natasha, and I really kinda hate this Cap. The B strip was a nice spirit-lifter, but not enough to boost my rating much.

    "Stop blaming the gun!" Of all the wrong replies Cap could have given, that's nearly the wrongest.

    What was interesting here was that most of the issue you spend with Overtime and, so when it's time to see him against Cap and Black Widow, I can't help, but kind of want him to do what he wants to. Part of it is the fact that you are not presented with the why not? What I mean by that is the heroes really do not try their best to shows him the error of his way, especially Widow. Idk, if that was intentional or not, but it's there IMO. Apart of that the issue shows Overtime as a humane character, feeling remorse and with good set of morals, numerous times. He is really like most of us and for a normal person, his reaction and feelings are normal, even too reasonable IMO. Still I think that this issue would have been better, if the writer tr more

    a mediocre, bland crossover event. This doesnt have good art nor are the fight scenes visually enaging. Why is Infinite Destinies an event again?
